Communities where Christ is least known

Yao

SIM has been working amongst the Yao people of Malawi since the late 1980s. The Yao are almost exclusively Muslim and are spread across eastern Malawi, northern Mozambique and southern Tanzania. In partnership with the Bible Society, the Scriptures were translated into Yao, and the full Yao Bible was published in 2014. Many missionaries have come and gone during this time — it is a difficult area in which to minister.
SIM also partners with OM in the ministry of Radio Lilanguka (“light” in the Yao language), a community radio station based in Mangochi, and with GZB, a Dutch mission organisation in a ministry called Mthenga Wabwino (“good messenger” in the Chichewa language). Mthenga Wabwino provides resources and training to help churches throughout Malawi engage with the communities around them.
